Contribute To The Foundation

Currently, the Foundation’s top funding priority is the establishment of a Samuel Jeffers Fellowship at Weill-Cornell. Beginning October 20, 2015, in memory of Sam, we have set a funding goal of $75,000 which would be used to fund a full-time, dedicated fellow who would work under the direction of Dr. Mark Souweidane at the Weill-Cornell Medical Center to research thalamic gliomas. Sam had a thalamic glioma and as far as we know no one other than Dr. Souweidane is currently researching this deadly brain tumor.

We hope and believe that Sam’s Foundation, supported by the generosity of our donors and the community, will help build a bridge to tomorrow’s advances and breakthroughs that will give future Sammy’s a chance. Ten years ago, if another family had had an opportunity to do something like this, it is possible that Sam might have lived. Ten years from now, it is our fervent wish that some other child will be able to live if he or she hears those same dreaded words that we did.

#FF0000 Raised $75,000 towards the $75,000 target.
